The 7th district and the Porte de Versailles, a neighbourhood where life is good
The Porte de Versailles is located in the south of Paris, near Metro lines 12 and 8, which can rapidly whisk you to the centre of the capital. A 15-minute Metro ride will take you to Montparnasse, historic site of the most popular theatres in Paris. Families can enjoy a restaurant meal and a show and end the evening with a breath-taking view of Paris from the top of the Montparnasse Tower. Metro line 6 is also easily accessible and will whizz parents and children towards the Eiffel Tower, the Champs-Elysées or the Nation neighbourhood of small restaurants, jazz clubs, gardens and cafe-theatres.
